Conference - Cambridge, United Kingdom
The 7th Wellcome Trust Genomic Disorders conference will present an exciting blend of genomic science and clinical medicine. This meeting aims to bring together scientists and clinicians interested in genomic variation in humans and the mechanisms by which it exerts its phenotypic effects.
Genomic Disorders 2013 will discuss the latest findings relating to the genomic basis of rare disorders as these can provide such powerful insights into human biology. Genome-wide analyses, including array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH) and Whole Exome Sequencing (WES), are proving to be of great value in discovering the genetic basis of rare disorders and illustrate the heuristic power of humans as a model organism. A particular focus of this meeting will be on bioinformatics approaches used to interpret genomic variants and on therapeutic targets for rare genetic diseases.
